Applied Calculus - Advanced Learning Edition (Looseleaf New Only) - 2nd edition

Applied Calculus - Advanced Learning Edition (Looseleaf New Only) (ISBN10: 047145530X; ISBN13: 9780471455301)
ISBN13: 978-0471455301
ISBN10: 047145530X

Summary:
  • The authors provide alternative avenues through which students can understand the material. Each topic is presented four ways: geometrically, numerically, analytically, and verbally.
  • The student starts with a practical problem and derives general results from it.
  • The topics included in the book were chosen after discussion with professors from a variety of disciplines, especially business, ec
    onomics, and life sciences.
  • Many of the real-world problems are open-ended, meaning that there may be more than one approach and more than one solution, depending on the student's analysis. Solving a problem often relies on the use of common sense and critical thinking skills. Students are encouraged to develop estimating and approximating skills.
  • The book presents the main ideas of calculus in a clear, simple manner to improve students' understanding and encourage them to read the examples.
  • Worked out examples are not entirely like the problem sets in the text. The result is that students cannot simply mimic techniques from the examples without actually learning the concepts.
  • Technology is used as a tool to help students visualize the concepts and learn to think mathematically. Graphics calculators, graphing software, or computer algebra systems perfectly complement this book but the emphasis is on the calculus concepts rather than the technology.
